Erik Haula has put a disappointing 2014-15 season behind him and he's looking forward to the upcoming campaign.
He was scratched for eight playoff games and found himself in coach Mike Yeo's doghouse for parts of the regular season. Haula notched just 14 points in 72 games and he posted a minus-7 rating. "It's already behind me," Haula said. "There's no reason to dwell on it. I'll just put the work in this summer and go from there. I'll try to do the best I can to be in the best shape possible." He inked a two-year, $2 million contract with the Wild earlier this month. Aug 6 - 1:16 PM

Erik Haula scored his only goal and point of the postseason just five seconds after Blackhawks defender Michal Rozsival left the game with an ankle injury.

Off the ensuring faceoff, Haula smacked home the rebound created by Matt Cooke who had redirected Matt Dumba's shot from the point. It was a big moment in the game, cutting Chicago's lead to 2-1 just 6:24 into the second period. In 15 career playoff games, Haula now has five goals and eight points.

Erik Haula appears as though he will be back in the lineup on Thursday night.

He made his 2015 playoff debut in Game 2 against Chicago and joined the fourth line during Minnesota's morning skate. Haula is projected to play with Jordan Schroeder and Matt Cooke.
May 7 - 1:48 PM

Erik Haula, who has yet to play a playoff game in 2015, hopes to get into the lineup for game two on Sunday.

"It’s been tough for sure, but I’m so full of excitement," said Haula, who scored four goals and seven points in 13 playoff games last spring. "It’s hard to describe what it feels like being out and feeling kind of helpless. But I’ve been working hard. If they call upon me, I’m going to give it my all and make sure it’s going to be tough to take me out." The 24-year-old has been a healthy scratch in each game despite scoring seven points in 13 playoff games last year.

Forwards Erik Haula, Ryan Carter, Jordan Schroeder, and defenders Christian Folin and Nate Prosser will join goalie Niklas Backtrom in the stands for Game Five on Friday night.

With the series tied at two, Coach Yeo elected to make only a tweak to his line up. Subbing Matt Cooke in for Sean Bergenheim. Among the group, only Haula has much potential fantasy value as he put up seven points in 14 playoff games for the Wild last postseason. Plus, his excellent speed can be the ever-elusive "X-factor" at any given moment.

The Wild will go with the same lineup that defeated St. Louis in Game 1 Thursday.

That means that Erik Haula, Jordan Schroeder and Ryan Carter will be healthy scratches in Saturday afternoon's Game 2 action against Blues.
Apr 18 - 11:54 AM

Erik Haula will draw back into the Minnesota lineup Saturday against Detroit.

He is often a healthy scratch but will play against the Wings at the expense of Ryan Carter. No real fantasy implications here.
Apr 4 - 1:57 PM

Erik Haula will be a healthy scratch Thursday against the New York Rangers.

It will mark his first trip to the press box since Jan. 29. Coach Mike Yeo said Haula will probably draw back into the lineup on Saturday versus Detroit. "After his last scratch, I thought he really elevated his game," said Yeo. "I think he's been doing an outstanding job on the penalty kill. There's a couple parts of his game that crept towards some of the things he was doing [before]. I don't think that he's playing bad, but I don’t think he's playing at quite of the level he was at."
Apr 1 - 3:19 PM

Erik Haula scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's win over Colorado.

The 23-year-old now has back-to-back two point games. Haula opened the scoring at the 10:49 mark of the first period. Colorado tied the game but the Wild added two more goals to get the win. Haula has seven goals and 12 points in 55 games this season.
